It seemed like a good idea at the time. I would hear it, get up, walk to the cupboard and switch it off. Just then, I would realise that I was far away from the cozy place and decide to get on with my day. I put it where I thought it should be and lay down. In the dream, I woke up and listened. I could not hear it. I checked my watch and it was two hours after when I should have woken up.
In real life, I have only heard it ring once.
